Frequently Asked Questions:
1) Is this a secular resource?
Yes! Our program is 100% completely secular. However, it can also be easily incorporated into a Christian homeschool by adding your own bible study. :)
2) Will this product be mailed to me?
No. Our product is a digital download and will be delivered to you as soon as your payment is processed. You can send it to a local print shop to be printed in bound, or keep it on a tablet or computer for reference.
3) Can I print out multiple copies?
Your purchase is for your family alone. Feel free to make as many copies as you like for your own family. If you would like to use activities from Blossom & Root for a co-op, please contact Kristina at firstname.lastname@example.org for permission first. Blossom and Root Early Years may not be resold (at curriculum fairs, online, or anywhere else.)
4) How long will it take to do this curriculum each day?
All activities can be done in about an hour a day, four to five days a week. You may stretch them out beyond that if you're having too much fun! :)
5) Are there any worksheets or workbooks included?
No. But you can incorporate your favorite workbooks as a supplement, if you like.
6) Are there any exchanges or refunds?
No. All sales are final. Due to the digital nature of our product, there are no exchanges or refunds. Please consider carefully if this is a good fit for your child prior to purchase.

Absolutely!

Please do not purchase this curriculum without reviewing the samples and information on our website first!
8) I can't decide between Early Years Vol. 1 or Vol. 2 for my child. Any tips?
The recommended ages for Early Years Vol. 1 are 2 - 4 years old. For Vol. 2, they are 4 - 5. However, this decision should be based on your child's individual needs. If your child already knows their alphabet and has begun to show serious interest in numbers and letter sounds, Vol. 2 may be a better fit. Feel free to email me for help with this decision at email@example.com. :)
